Hi, I've got a Christmas card to share this morning. This is going into 3 challenges.

Catered Crop, Accentuate the Negative - Using negative die cuts or punches
My card ~
|Just for fun, I added a few hoof prints to the inside of the card.|
I layered my colored cardstock pieces onto a scrap piece, then die cut them. Then I made a couple of reference marks on the card base so that I would know where to stamp the sleigh and horse image. I popped up the die cut panel with foam adhesive.
I love the look of negative die cuts, even though it's something I don't do often. I'm really liking my card, but I think I would use lighter, brighter colors next time I use gradients of color. This card turned out much darker than I planned. Hmmm. Do your cards ever seem to take off in a direction of their own?
Thanks for taking a look today.
